Roberto Luongo is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation after undergoing hip surgery during the offseason, and will be ready to start the regular season for the Florida Panthers.
The Score reports that the 37-year-old was initially expected to walk on crutches for at least a month following the operation, yet that only lasted two weeks.
Said Luongo: “(I’m) good to go. A lot of hard work over the summer, but I'm really happy with the way things progressed. Going into it I wasn't quite sure how it was going to go, but I'm excited to be here, first day of training camp and with a clean bill of health.”
Regarding the James Reimer signing: “As much as I'd love to play 70 games still, I don't think that's wise.”
